Made in USA, Assembled in China

Blogroll Me!
As our economy tanks, there will be all sorts of rip offs in the mail to get our money. Our household has stopped purchasing anything made in China. On an ad like this iHeater, it was like pulling teeth to get a strait answer as to where it was made. We had to call the telephone number on this ad to inquire as it is not apparent anywhere on the ad. The person on the other end of the phone seemed shocked at the question about the origins and it even seemed like he might be lying. This unit is actually "supposedly" made here in the US, but assembled in China. How much sense does that really make, and why should I believe a word of it? Maybe because I am blogging this, folks will make those phone calls to these representatives and perhaps the outsourcing jobs to China will come shining through as a no no from now on! We should know how cost ineffective it is to ship pieces of something across the world in order to be put together. Why...If we made the unit parts here can we not put the unit together here? I would not be surprised if this unit would be recalled soon. I have zero faith in this product and I resent the fact that it would even be legal in this country to sell it. Hopefully there won't be too many house fires and deaths as a result.
